I apoligize in andvance because I am sure this has been asked many times. I searched the previous posts and still am confused. From what I read, there isn't a fee to get into the Statue or the Ellis Island Musuem. What you are paying for is the ferry ride. On May 9th (on Statue Cruises), the first available time for Reserve with Pedestal/Museum Tickets available isn't until 1:00PM.The tickets that just say Reserve are available all day. (In the description these tickets say that you can visit the grounds. Does that mean you can't get inside?) How does this work!?!?
We would be departing from NJ. If we would purchase the 1:00 tickets, would that give me and my husband enough time to see everything? Or should we postpone and try to get an earlier time?
